This is the third time we have stayed here, this time being for 5 nights. We arrived and checking in was a breeze, with fobs and keys provided. Location is so central and provides access to restaraunts, cafe's, shops and beach, as well as light rail. Apartment on 12th floor was great , spacious , clean and nothing lacking. Second...

We were pleased with our accommodation it was modern and clean with great views. The check in policy is ridiculous. We had to arrive and check in between 2-3pm. (Not before or after) Which made things very awkward as we were enjoying a day at sea world but had to leave early. Found the reception staff to be rude and...

Hi GeorgieCaerphilly, Thank you for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor. It is always great to read the positive comments regarding our apartments and views. There appears to be a miscommunication regarding our check-in time. Check-in time is from 2pm but if your room is clean earlier we are always happy for you to check-in early. Our...

We have stayed in many places on the beautiful Gold Coast over the years and I can say that this place is by far the nicest place that we have stayed in!

We booked a 1 bedroom apt for 5 nights over Christmas. The apartment was large but inadequately and poorly furnished - not one comfortable chair to sit on. The brochure is misleading - our apt 604 did not resemble the one bedroom Apt pictured in the brochure. The kitchen was poorly equipped - not even a sharp knife. Unfortunately management...

Dear Jenny, Thank you for your review. I am sorry to hear that you found the furniture in the apartment inadequate. Each apartment is furnished individually and your apartment is often requested by other repeat guests. The lounge suite has a modern low design and the chairs are also modern. If we had the availability we would have been happy...

Wonderful resort having now had four return stays. Rooms are great, clean and spacious with all modern amenities and wonderful views. Pool area fantastic but not overly protected from wind and shaded in the afternoon's. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Will definitely return again.

Could not be happier with the Wave Resort. Access and parking was easy. The resort was very accommodating for our needs to have the car parked before we could check in, and they organised for us to be able to check in a little early. We were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment which was beautifully appointed with everything that...

Don't waste your hard earned cash at this place. Go elsewhere. There are 100s of other places to stay. No service, poor advice when booking room and had to take the family out of place halfway through our stay and lost $2000.
